[Intro]
Em

[Verse 1]

Em C EmTravelin' down that coal town road.
G D EmListenin' to my rubber tires whine.
Em C EmGoodbye to Buckeye and white Sycamore.
G D EmI'm leavin' you behind.
G D EmI've been coal miner all of my life.
Em D C DLayin' down track in the hole.
G D GGotta back like an ironwood, bit by the wind.
Em D EmBlood veins blue as the coal.
C D EmBlood veins blue as the coal.
[Verse 2]
Em C EmSomebody said, "That's a strange tattoo
G D Emyou have on the side of your head"
Em C EmI said, "That's the blueprint left by the coal.
G D EmA little more and I'd been dead
G D EmWell, I love the rumble and I love the dark.
Em D C DI love the cool of the slade
G D GAnd it's on down the new road, lookin' for a job.
C D EmThis travelin' nook in my head"
[Verse 3]
Em C EmI stood for the union and walked in the line
G D Em and fought against the company
Em C EmI stood for the U. M. W. of A.
G D EmNow, who's gonna stand for me?
G D EmI've got no house and I got no pay,
Em D C Djust got a worried soul
G D GAnd this blue tattoo on the side of my head
Em D Emleft by the number nine coal.
C D EmLeft by the number nine coal
[Verse 4]
Em C EmSomeday when I die and go
G D Em to heaven, the land of my dreams
Em C EmI won't have to worry on losin' my job,
G D Emon bad times and big machines
G D EmI'm not gonna pay my money away
Em D C Don dues or hospital plans
G D GI'm gonna pick coal where the blue heavens roll
C D Emand sing with the angel band
[Outro]
G D EmI'm not gonna pay my money away
Em D C Don dues or hospital plans
G D GI'm gonna pick coal where the blue heavens roll
Em D Emand sing with the angel band
C D Emand sing with the angel band
